out with the old, in with the new

February 19, 2007

today, the friendly folks at guitar center had a big presidents day sale. I went over to the Glen Burnie store near my school and decided to have a look around. I wasnt looking for anything in particular, and wasnt exactly in the mood to part with my money but it inevitably happened.

for the first time, I saw the emu 0404 USB 2.0 audio interface sitting on the shelf in person. Ive only seen it online… and I could hear it calling it out to me. Of course I just stood there dissapointed because it had a nice bright price tag that read $199.


so from there I just sadly walked away and browsed around at the other onsale merchandise. Then one of the salesmen came up to me and asked if I needed help. I said “nope, just looking around for now”, and he replied “well be sure to ask me if you have any questions. And if you see anything that’s not on sale, I’ll make it on sale for you.” Suddenly my interest peaked. Then I just stood there, crunching numbers, configuring different options in my head, and I decided I’d at least talk to the guy and see what can happen.

Anyways long story short, I paid 90 bucks before tax for it. He sold me the unit for 150 (instead of 200), and I traded in my old preamp for an additioanl 60 dollars credit. Friggn sweet 🙂

So, Presonus Bluetube, thankyou for the last few years we had together. You were an amazing companion.

and to the Emu 0404 USB… hellloooooooooooo nurse.
